The WTA Finals set to take place from 23rd October will last eight days this year, one day more compared to 2014.

This is due to a change in the doubles category, which will now have a round robin leg before heading into the knockout rounds.

The pair of Sania Mirza and legend Martina Hingis have already qualified for the Finals, and will showcase their talents at the Indoor Stadium.

In the singles tournament,  world number one Serena Williams has also qualified, making it the earliest qualification for the WTA Finals in history.

WTA Finals Tournament Director Melissa Pine also announced that they will be bringing some of the game’s greats in the WTA Legend’s Classic.

She said: “Martina Navratilova will be back here again. As well as Spanish legend Arantxa Sanchez Vicario will be here making her debut in Singapore. We also will be bringing back Li Na, though she won’t be on the court, she will be bringing her new baby. She will be coming back to Singapore to help inspire the next generation of young Asian tennis players.”

Another event to look out for during the major sporting event include the first ever Singapore Tennis Evening at Marina Bay Sands. It is a gala dinner on 30th October to celebrate the achievements of the best women’s players in the world.

The Gala will be headlined by British singing sensation Paloma Faith. Tickets go on sale from this Saturday 25th July.

On the sporting front, the event organisers introduced Advantage Singapore, which is a series of workshops to teach young people on the playing techniques of professional tennis players.
